Spurs ink Emmanuel Adebayor

Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday completed the permanent signing of Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor, who scored 17 goals while on loan at White Hart Lane last season.

Adebayor, 28, cost City £26 million ($41 million) when he signed from Arsenal in 2009 but following Roberto Mancini's arrival as manager he was frozen out at Eastlands.

The Togo international spent loan spells at Real Madrid in 2010-11 and then impressed while at Spurs for the duration of the 2011-12 season.

With the acquisition of Adebayor, Andre Villas-Boas' attacking options will get a boost. The Spurs started the season with Jermain Defoe at striker.

"I am pleased to be signing for Spurs on a permanent basis after finally agreeing my departure with Manchester City," Adebayor said.

"It may have taken longer than expected but I am delighted to be back at Tottenham Hotspur. I really enjoyed my time here last season and I am hoping we can achieve great things together again."

Adebayor tweeted: "I'm back!!!! Tottenham here I come!! I'm hungry for goals...Get ready."
